Set for release on 7th October on Practise Music, Bingo Fury has announced his debut EP ‘Mercy’s Cut’, alongside sharing new single ‘Underfall Yard’.
“Musically, Underfall Yard feels like the first time myself and the band really hit the spot with the light and shade thing,” he explains. “Atonality bringing clarity to melody, and melody emphasising the discomfort of atonality. I wanted the music to shadow the unhinged atmosphere of the lyrics.”
“Ben Woods & I produced, engineered and mixed this EP together, with all the songs performed by the Bingo Fury band,” he adds. “Working with Ben felt special. I’m a big fan of his work as The Golden Dregs, particularly his record ‘Hope is for the Hopeless’, which made a big impression on me during the development of the project. Having him in the room felt like a full circle thing. We recorded this EP between the stage of an old cinema/theatre/venue in Bristol called The Cube and the basement of The Louisiana (a legendary pub & music venue). The basement of The Louisiana used to be the hangman’s quarters before the prison opposite was demolished. It’s still believed to be haunted.”
